  1. The billing has changed and a lot of colleagues get confused using this new billing method. It is harder to see the companions on the same room when 2 guest are travelling together in one room. Sometimes the charges from F&B are booked on 2 different names in the same reservation. This can be easily forgotten on check out when very busy.
    The room number is also not visible in the billing. It would be nice to see a name and roomnumber. (sometimes there are 2 bookings under the same name)

    We would love to change back to the old…

    Hello,

    Thank you for your comments and feedback regarding the billing screen.

    We have released an update resolving issues where the room names and room numbers were missing from the billing screen.

    The new billing screen has 2 main views, group billing and individual billing.

    From the group billing screen, you will be able to view a list of all bill items for reservation owners and companions. The group billing screen can be accessed from the billing tab on the top right hand side of the reservations screen.

    The group billing screen shows all bill items for a group for the current stay period. Whereas as the individual billing screen (which can be accessed by selecting the billing icon next to a guests name), will show you all bill items from current, previous and future reservations.

    To learn more about the new group billing screen, please click on the link…

  2. For paymaster accounts we organize the receivable invoices per month or prepare a group of bill for a special wire transfer amount. Having the option of renaming a bill preview will be very useful when we transfer a receivable invoice from a customer profile to the paymaster account. We won't confuse about the right bill preview to transfer anymore.

    Hello Mewsers,

    We are very happy to inform you that we have officially released functionality that will allow you to rename a bill title on the new billing screen.

    To learn more, head over to our release notes page linked below, or select the pencil icon next to a bill title to begin the product walk through for the new feature.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback and helping us improve Mews Operations!

  3. Please remove the option to charge the customer card against all items under Unassigned.
    This is causing operational problems, because is much easier to charge fully for current and future stays all together by mistake or while in a rush. The only way to prevent wrong charging is to manually move the charges to a New Bill.
    This is a technical disadvantage.

    Old billings screen was able to prevent this as products for future reservations were kept on the left hand side. There was no option to collect payment against them.

  4. I don't mind the new billing screen, once you get used to it, it is quite easy to use.
    One thing I would suggest is that in the new billing screen, we move a lot of items to Paymasters and we now can't see which item belongs to which guest

    It used to show as:
    Stay 1129 (Jane Smith, 1/12/2020-2/12/2020, Standard Room, 16) - $150

    Now shows as:
    Past, 1/12/2020-2/12/2020 - 1129 x1 - $150

    Hello Madelaine,

    We apologies for the delayed response. However, we are happy to inform you that the functionality that you requested has been released.

    You are currently able to see the name of a the original guest who owned a bill before it was moved to a paymaster account.

    We hope this update will be helpful for your day to day tasks.

    Kind regards,
    Aldair

  5. The new billing feature is awful. it is not easy to read or negotiate at all.

    I can see that a lot of people feel the same and Mews resistance to change this back. Please listen to your users. I do not see how this new features improves anything at all.

    If a guest has a lot of bookings coming up it is even worse.

    Hello Maria,

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.

    Since you shared your comments with us 2 months ago we have been working continuously to improve the new billing screen in order to ensure that it not only meets the standards of the old billing screen, but opens up the opportunity to begin surpassing the functionality feature set of the old billing screen.

    We have split the billing screen into 2 views. A group view accessible by selecting the “Billing” tab on the top right had side of the reservation screen and an individual view accessible by selecting the billing icon next to a guests name, or by selecting “all guest bills” from the group billing screen.

    The group billing screen gives you an overview of all reservations and companions within a group for the current stay period. Whereas the individual billing screen will show you all bill items…

  6. When we charge the breakfast, the price is the same for the adults of for the children we can't make a difference. It'd b great if we can fix this: the products are adjusted with the number of adults/children in the room

  7. Mews should not impose anything on our official document. Moreover, if Mews wants to make a change on the official documents, they should warn us before.
    Hence we notice that our invoices and pro-format are now labelled "Factuur" (dutch word for invoice). But we do not use dutch in our system.
    Forcing us to use dutch language on our english or french invoices is just
    not right.

  8. This property was asking for a way to add a discount percentage to an invoice before they close the bill in a way they will not have to calculate it themselves manually. Right now the only way to do that is to create a product but they will still need to calculate the total price after the discount.

    Hello Mewsers!

    Thank you for sharing your feedback with us.

    We are happy to inform you that we have added the ability to access the billing screen directly from the timeline.

    In order to make use of this functionality all you need to do is select a reservation from the timeline, from there you will see the billing icon in the side menu. Selecting this icon will open the billing screen as shown in the attached image.

    Kind regards,
    Aldair

  10. Some properties have specific billing preferences for some products, so properties could assign some items to OTA or company bills automatically, while others would be transferred to the guest's bill for payment.

  12. As it can be time consuming to sort through and view each document individually, the capability to export all bills closed within a particular interval to a single document could expedite this process for many accounting teams.

    Hello Mewsers,

    We are very happy to inform you that we have released the new group billing screen!

    On this new screen we have separated bill items from past and future reservations. Now you can stick to seeing the relevant bills for your reservation in the selected stay period

    Don’t worry, we haven’t gotten rid of it completely! We have created an additional billing screen for each guest. You can access this screen by selecting “All guest’s bills” in the new billing screen. This will show you all open past, present and future bills for the guest you have selected, with convenient tags so you always know which bills are relevant for you.

    Please note this functionality is only available on the new billing screen which will continue to run along side the current billing module.

    Think of this as your billing screen 2.0!

    For this and many more new…

  14. The display of products on bills was previously confusing for many properties, however with some minor formatting improvements, products could now be listed per day along with their respective prices and quantities."

    Accounting categories can now be deleted.

    Have you needed to use this yet and do you have any feedback?

  17. If a payment fails when trying to settle a guest bill, it can create problems for your staff as they might have to chase that guest for a successful payment. Therefore, automating tasks for failed settlements could help streamline this process and collect payments as soon as possible.

    For example: In case of manual settlement, a task could be created to collect payment from the guest at the time of your settlement trigger. In case of a failed automatic settlement, a task could be created to collect payment from the guest at the time of your settlement trigger.

  18. Some countries are not able to properly price and account VAT for long stays, especially when the long stay is changed from the original reservation above or below the certain amount of days. At billing, Mews should properly calculate the discount based on the length of stay (e.g. discount is for every day of a stay longer than 28 days; no discount for a stay of less than 29 days), adjusting the overall price to be paid by the guest, based on any discount.
